Okra – Cabbage Fry
Posted by Annita on June 27, 2006
|Okra otherwise known as Lady’s Finger in Indian Cuisine ,is one vegetable which is often neglected by many people.When cut, okra releases some sticky substance with has heavy thickening properties.May be it is this clinginess,that matters most.Indira of Mahanandi , has given a beautiful description and some tips to handle the clinginess of Okra.I too hated it before.But donno somehow i developed a liking towards this vegetable and now i can have almost anything with Okra.When buying fresh okra,you have to look for young and tender ones without any bruises.Okra is a rich source of many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin B6 and folic acid.This Okra Cabbage Fry is my Amma’s favorite and it goes very well with roti and rice.
Here’s the recipe..
Okra cut into 1/2 inch size pieces – 1 cup
|Heat oil in a pan and saute onion,curry leaves,green chillies and garlic for few minutes.Add turmeric powder and salt into it and mix well.Now stir in cabbage and saute it till it starts to turn soft.Add okra pieces and mix thoroughly.Fry till it is done ,stirring occasionally.Serve hot .
